Conversion of max files to ai file format

3ds Max supports in its latest versions export to Adobe Illustrator graphics (.ai), so if it's technically possible, you should be able to perform this particular conversion just using the default export function in the program. Such max to ai conversion is used for example for export of 3D text, logos and similar elements.
